What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is a real-life interactive adventure game. Your team works together to solve puzzles and riddles using clues, strategy, and cooperation to complete the objectives and escape. You only have one hour, so every second counts!

Put down your devices and connect with your family, friends, and co-workers.

No special skills or knowledge is required. And you can always ask for hints.
